Not real funny if you're Quebec and land this team. Lost in all the euforia of landing the team back, is that Doan who is over 35 will demand a trade or retire. His cap hit will stay on your books if he does retire, otherwise he will have a hammer in negotiations with a NTC.

I know just getting the team back will be awesome, but that is going to be a sticky situation almost instantly, because I see no way that Shane Doan does actually go to Quebec. Doan might go to Seattle, cannot see him doing the same if this team winds up where most people think it will.
